Day 20 of #31DaysWithIgnatius

There’s nothing quite like death, which reminds us that we are mere recipients of this gift called #life; that we are as empty vessels longing to be filled, and that whatever time we have on this earth, may it be as a gentle grace-filled presence.

Lord, we ask your blessing on the souls of those who’ve passed into the next life. Be with those who mourn and grieve the loss of their loved ones. May we who encounter them be as beacons of light and comfort. Ad majorem Dei gloriam. For the greater glory of God.

In celebration of Ignatian Spirituality, and to mark the feast of St Ignatius of Loyola (31 July), I have taken on the challenge of posting a picture a day that speaks to me of the lessons learned from all things ‘Ignatian’; including ‘finding God in all things.’ Here it is, as posted on Instagram (@fcjAustralia).

  1. Dear Geralyn, Thank you again for persevering! I loved this one and it helped me with the sad loss of a young cousin. Blessings, Maryrose fcJ
